Ed lalns all participation is the withholding of the diploma, and sott Sfbth the self-conttadltion of the material istic theory. Hte says, very justly, that If materialism be true, there can be no free. thinking, since, if the soul Is but the result of material forces, it must be their slave. Besides, the materialist voluntarily closes to. himself all the world of thought which lies above sand beyond matter, and, there fee, his thinking is really less free than tVh' of thoei who' beieve in spiritual exidbence. He then goes on to vindicate the mission of his Church, and closes with this eloquent pasget "And you, also, after a long experiesce will ot continue to call *etfion the 'betef in truths which are of *4dery age; for the truth is always young; - aone' dayay, d3ing, long after I shall be no *'mre,ý'yotr willnot lae to face with eternity, -oasea the babd wlih 'I extted you at this' ..-on tofd fotreceive from yozrr fa d which you will not reftse.bm '-an '6ho g not ban ba h6p : 'I do y from C friMend, for' y would ' believe me: Devertheles, tlat aw le fact." r'gt letters I excited pgeat atteption France the most varied comments. owing is the letter of the young yia , anl an the opening portion of the op's reply: you.

I aspire to do asM my father did before me. The Bishop's reply was as follows : You tell me that your father was a mate trialist and free-thinker, and that-you agree in 'his opinions. By what inadvertence is it that you do not perceive the contradic )aon in terms of your theory ? For if thoug,'t 'is but a produce of matter, how can it bit 'free I A materialist cannot possibly be a free-thinker; and Iadd that hecannot be a .great.thinker, for his horizon must necessa urily be limited.

You :speak of belief iii tihe soul as an antiquated "and decaying doctrine. The "past," of vRhioh you so contemptuously speak, has been an illustrious one.

ZOCAvxs.-The infulx of strangers has been immense within the last few days,.the majo ity. being sight-seeing Americans, or CatholicFrenos ard Belgiana, whom devotion to the temporal power,- or connection with the -present taitirs,brings to Rome. There are many nmilies arriving whose sons fell at' Mentna, and the desire to visit the spot and slpeak with the wit nesses of their last .moment, to erect their monuments, and receive the special bless ings of the Pope, is the principal motive with them. One lady, the mother of a Zonave, at whose last moments I was pres ent at.Mentana, the eldestson of a princely Belgian house, dati the Crusades, said to me this morning: " I have but one more son, and I have brought him to en gage, and, if God wills it, die in the same cause as his brothers- and his fathgrs at Ascalon and Acre. Life is toohort to weigh in such a cause as that of the Eternal Church." This is but one of a hundred touching instances of the same wwafderfil spirit of devotedness that has taken root all over Europe, and is creating an army of crusaders inm Rome. The two Counts Stol berg, the Count D'Alt, Count Kiseendreck, are among the latest German, and Mr. Ar thur Stourton among the latest English re cruits. Two young Dutchmen engaged the other day under similar circumstances. Being of good fanml', they did not like to accept their traveling expenses from the cuommittee, and had not themselves the means, of paying them, being far itfrom easy circumstauccs. They resolved to apply to their king, and asked for an audience, which was. readily granted them, and then ex iplained their desire to Ils majesty. The king listened most gracionusly to their re quest, but said: "Suppose I need your swords for the defense of Holland, may I count on them ?"'' "'In all cases," replied the young men, "our religion teaches us loyalty to our sovereign and our country is a duty, and whenever your mujesty needs us you will lind no miore faithtul soldiers than those whom you have aitded to defend the cause of Plus IX."

Duriei dery day of its continuance, large congregations saiaepbled both morning-cad evening at the services, and the ionfeesonasl were almost emotsntly crowded.

Besides the greatgood done by-this mission to lukewarm aait indifferent (atholie, it extenddd its influence beyond the pale of the Church.

DIOCESE OF SAVAx0NA.-Progress of the Church is Augusta.-Besides the converts received into the Church during Holy Week, Father Ryan baptized five last Sunday evening, and receives six persons into the Church this week. We understand that a great many colored_ people are applying to him for instruction. So the work pro greasses. Owing to the heavy rains anl freshets of last week, which interrnpted railroad travel, the Synod of Georgia and Florida, convoked by Rt. Rev. Bishop Verot, did not meet-in Savannah at the appointed time, Monday evening, April 27. It is to meet Monday e'ening, May 4,--Bctaner of the South. DIoczss OF AxTroN.-On the 26th of April, -the RightBev. Bishop confirmed at Mattoon, Colescounty, stty'six persons. On the 28th he confirmed twenty-fourpersenat Arcola Douglas county. On account of the bad weather the dedication of the new church was deferred to the next day, when it was blessedin honor of St. John the Baptist. This new congregation of Arcola has done very well duaang the short time it has been formed. The church was commenced under the care of the zealous pastor of Mattooin and is now out of debt. The faithful are indeed generous, and are more deserving a pastor than many other and more numerous congregations. The foundations for a new high altar for St. Laurence O'Toole's . Church are now being laid for the reception of the elaborate marble structure. which, judging from the design, will be a unique work of art. The Hudson Memorial Altar, which we recently noticed, is being rapidly completed, and will be a great addition to the above edifice. Additieo to St. Afichael's Cherch.-A much needed want is being supplied to the above church, by an addition to the west end, intended to occupy the vacant lot in front. The new fagade on Eleventh street will be of a corresponding style with the present church. It will be flanked by two toweres contaiuinng elfrys, L;aptistry, and sta.irs to gallery. The accomnuodation in the body I of tire church will be increaned by two hundred and fifty sittings, and the gallery will seat about six hundred children.--t. Louis Guardian.

Time for Plamtingj.-Spring planting is best for the beginner; but after getting on hand a stock of acclimated plants it is best toplant about the middle of August: before that, is even better, if the season will serve. Mastiig.-The ground for strawberries should be highly enriched with stable man ure, and thoroughly prepared by subsoilin, barrowing,and rolling. Set the plants in rows three feet sapart, and two feet from plant to plant Cpltivate the with the horseho or cultivtor, and beareful to Sde'all grass or weeds picaed i om about the hills s the hand fý,ogoes along.

BLACKERRIEs.-The same intelligent gentlemen gives the following suggestions regarding blackberry culture: It would be well to ship blackberries from Southert--points to this market. The first in market sei for forty cents a quart; and although it is estimated that not less than five hundred, some say a thousand, negroes are constantly employed in picking them during the season, yet thbeare so much sought after that they never get-tower than sixty cents pergallon. And I would-remind parties about to enter upon strawberr-ncul ture on a larger scale, of the fact above re- lated, in regard-to blackberries. Tliey never get lower than sixty cents per gallon, and -it will be a long time before the supply of strawberries will equal that of blackberries. I would advise no one to buy any of the well advertised varieties of blackberries. By a little observation in passing through the country you will be able to find much better varieties than any which will ever come from the North. Tax SEBEC POTATO.-Dr. B. H. Stevens ofEssex, Connecticut, writes: " Last springI sent to Maine and got a quantity of the early Sebec potatoes, and found them large and handsome. I planted as directed, putting only two eyes m a hill; I think I could not have used more than three barrels to the acre. They started early and grew well. There were vines enough, and I sometimes thought that cutting to one eye would have done aswell. They were fit to dig by the 10th 1 to the 15th ofJuly (that was early with us last season.) I had from one acre three hundred bashelas-of the large, smooth, handsome po tatoes. I planted the early Goodrich in the same way, and the yield was about tihe same; it is not as early, not as good eating, not as fine, and with more small ones. The Sebec we think with us the best early potato that grows. It resembles the Mercer, and it has the same pink streak running through it when cut. I cannot speakl too highly of the Sebec. It did nobly with us last season and gave us a large yield, while almost all other kinds failed." Th variety, which is quite popular "Down Eaot," is not as gen erally knowvn as its pseikits deserve. It is highly commnended by Messrs. Burr and a Gregory. Mr. Gregory says that the Sebec will andmit of being dug earlier in proplor tion to the maturity it has attained than d will the early Goodrich, and is excellent d snd prolific. b MANURxGO LAwNs.-Failing rich com- h post, or thoroughly decayed dung, sow o Peruvian gnano over the lawn, showery fi -eoiher in April, at the rate of cwt. per o acre, and give another dress in the first wet c weather in June, applying it just before h rain.

Overhead was the dome, which, from without, is seen rising above the walls. Meetigg anotherguide, I was conducted into a large plain room, with rather a faded ear pet upon the floor, and presented the dis atch to the minister. My letter of intro uction was next presented, and to that I owe4 much attention and much pleasure in Lim-a. Through these two court-yards rushed the murderers of Pisarro, and the room wherehewas slain is still pointedont; and even, I believl, there is some pretense of the spots made his blood being still visible, as the bloody-tains rfaed to be washed out at Holyrood. \ On the' eastern side of thePljaza stands the Cathedral. It is a handsome stbne build ing, built in that style of architecture so common to- Spanish churches, the brtoa, faecada being supported by a tower on each side. -This cathedral was founded in the old historical times, and it was here that Pizarro attended mass. Even in those early days, he must have looked forward to a time when Christianity -sholld prevail over all the land, for it is very large. It measures three hundred and twenty feet long, by one hundred and eighty broad! a remains are saii ere, and were shown to us. In avault beneath thechurch, reposing upon a shelf, lies the mummy of Pisarro. Leading southerly is the Call de Xeroa dare, and northerly, the Calle de Paildcio (or PElaie street.) Followiag the latter, past many fine stores and madsome private sneidences, you-come to a stone bridge-over five hunded feet in length, far belowwhieh runs a stall :stream, the Rlmnh.

The bridge connects the city with the district across the Rimac, called San Lasaro. Close by is the famous Alameda. A statue that I saw in Lima impressed me as no other piece of sculptor's art had done before. It was in-the Church of San Francisco. Connected with this magnificent church the exterior of which is the finest in Lima, is a monastery,-the oldestand largest in America. It was founded in 15)6, more than three hundred and thirty years ago. It is.an enormous stone edifice, covering two entraesquares. Seeking admittance, my self and a companion, we were 'shown in and left to wander at will through the broad corridors, and up vast stairways, admiring as we went, the.grandeur of the design, and deploring its ruinous condition. At length we were met by a venerable ,adre, to whom we explained that we, North Americans, and for the first - time in Lima, were desirous of seeing the convent, and also the Church of San Francisco. He kindly showed us over the whole monastery, the rooms, halls studies, cloisters, and the hospital, and penance-cells, below. He pointed out the bed on which Saint (whose name I am sorry to be obliged to confess that I have for gotten) slept and died. The saint's picture, pis violin, and even his skull, were shown o us.

In fact,- it is the reat local celebration of the year.
